George Washington, the Greek God?

In his post entitled In Defense of “Heroification” (Part 1), Scott Powell presents an excellent refutation of the ideas in the popular book, Lies My Teacher Told Me. As a parent of one of Scott’s gigglers (upon seeing the Horatio Greenough statue of George Washington) I can attest to the fact that children who have a grasp of the real heroism of George Washington do not fall prey to the type of hero worship condemned in the book.

I eagerly await the second and third installments of Scott’s posting on the proper heroification of George Washington which will also be found on
History At Our House.
